MY ENEMY IS MYSELF • You are my enemy - the worst of your kind - You push away people; You chicken out. You make fun and laugh at things you shouldn’t. You think horrible things And silently you are truly afraid. “Run, run!” I say- Hide from all. Your friends think you are kind, sweet and innocent. Only I know your truth— Because; dear enemy, I am you.

    THE mind SHIFT IS to truly understand  THIS

   BE master of  MIND rather than mastered by

   mind  Muhammed said - whoever knows

   himself knows GOD - but the Dalai Lama said

   What IS MIND ? during his week-long

   discussion with a panel of  distinguished 

   scientists and philosophers about human

   behaviour. Daniel Goleman's illuminating

   account of this meeting - DESTRUCTIVE

   EMOTIONS and how we can overcome them

   offers fresh insights into how we can recognise 

   & change the emotions that pose grave danger 

   to our ... individual and collective fate.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

The human mind seems to work best in the resence of reality. The more nearly whole the picture, the better. And reality contains what is good as well as what is bad. In fact in most cases there is, in a complete picture of reality, far more good than bad.

Humans are trapped by a mindless system… how can we as engaged citizens co-create a mindful purpose-driven self-secure system for the happiness and welfare of all beings ?

All that you bring to us on Zaadz, reminds me a great deal about someone i am really fond of a really beautiful,genuine singer that i have being following for about 10 years now. His music and most importanly his powerful love that he carries along as heal me in different struggles through life but as also brought me the truth of it all. which i see in most of your blogs.It is the presence of that real pure love in all of us put in us by god(the more you connect to god the more love is received it is so contagious! and the more you get in touch with yourself the more you see the immense powerful light that love is and if i may add it is the only true thing we need in the world it is the key to all of our problems because from the ancient time it has been there for us and for some unknown reason with just don't connect with it with its glory and power what a waste for our poor little soul!

Thank you so much for everything thing that you are and changing the world that is what makes Zaadz just a special place it is finding everytime a little it more of yourself i feel so much at home with m familly here

Challenging Conventional Wisdoms

Things are hotting up; and not just in terms of soaring temperatures. Politicians, opinion-formers, economists and business gurus all seem now to be jockeying for pole position in the climate change debate. It is almost as if, simply by demonstrating their supposed credentials and commitment, the ‘answer’ and with it salvation, will be found.

The ‘solutions’ to climate change repeatedly proferred by Western leaders, think-tanks and board rooms – technical fixes, managerial reorganisations and diktats from on high - recall the workings and mindset of defunct communist regimes.

Put aside political ideology, however, and the notion that technocratic, scientific and political elites have’the answers’ by dint of their societal standing, practically ensures that the one thing rarely opened up to further examination is what drives their self-referential interests, values, hierarchies, mores, or - for that-matter - epistemologies, in the fist place. Even less discussed is the possibility that it might be exactly these imperatives which are acting as an intertial brake on meaningful action, or, worse still, lie at the very not of why we are in these dire straits.

Mark Levene & David Cromwell June 2007

BE ASSURED our new masters of the globe are saying to us “rest assured we are not intent on destroying the world, but doing everything in our power to save it.” But the truth is that we most all individually and collectively question that assumption; and must do so by challenging the social, economic and political parameters within which these diverse elite actors (celebrities of al) assume a basis for action (or inaction) on climate change. The essential inadequacy of the elite postion rests on an unwillingness, indeed inability, to accept anthropogenic climate change as an inevitable consequence of their self-interested obsession with the need for ever continuing growth of our globalising economic system. Only by rethinking the operating premises of that are we likely to have any chance of moving towards a safer and more sustainable future.

The best and the most beautiful things in the

world cannot be seen nor even touchedbut

just felt in the heart - Helen Keller

DOUBLE MAGIC • It was Helen Keller who said ...

"LIFE is either a daring adventure, or nothing."

 and Margaret Mead who declared ...

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
 committed citizens can change the world.
 Indeed, IT IS the only thing that ever has."
